- Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease two baking sheets. Combine the flour, salt, baking soda and oatmeal in a bowl. Set aside. Use an electric mixer to beat the butter, brown sugar, white sugar, egg, water and vanilla until creamy. Stir in the flour mixture with a spoon. Mix well. Stir in the pecans and raisin pieces.
- Drop by teaspoonfuls on the baking sheets, leaving about 2 inches between the cookies. Bake about 12 minutes, until lightly browned. Remove from the pan at once and cool on a wire rack.
- Yields about 5 dozen cookies.
